Clean energy financing.  Gives localities the authority to, in order to secure loans for the initial acquisition and installation of clean energy improvements, place liens ranking on parity with liens for unpaid property taxes against any property where such renewable energy systems are being installed. Further allows the locality to bundle the loans for transfer to private lenders in such a manner that would allow the liens to remain in full force to secure the loans. Read the Bill »
